Shohei Ohtani can pitch … he can hit … AND HE CAN SAAAANGG!!!
Here’s the Japanese Babe Ruth proving there really isn’t anything he can’t do … serenading his Los Angeles Angels teammates on a team bus with a Japanese rendition of “Despacito.”
OK … it’s not quite Justin Beiber or Luis Fonsi — but the 24-year-old pitcher does have some tone … and his teammates loved it!!
“Best thing he did all year!” one player yells after Shohei wraps up.
The impromptu concert appears to be part of a season-ending hazing for L.A. rookies — and yeah, dudes that throw 100 MPH AND hit bombs still gotta participate.
By the way … Shohei’s expected to be sidelined from pitching until 2020 because of an elbow injury — soooo, more time for singing lessons???
Meantime, here’s the full Japanese version of the song. Enjoy!
